Follett Challenge grant

Merton School District is participating in the Follett Challenge. Here is a video from WTMJ which ran on Wednesday. The Follett Challenge is a grant opportunity that is put out by the Follett organization. The challenge involves making a video about a program at your school to be judged against schools from around the country. 20% of our final score is based on People's Choice points awarded through online polling. Please take a moment to vote between Monday, January 23 and Friday, January 27 using this weblink: https://follettchallenge.com/videos/774 and vote for Merton School's video. Your vote will help us win!
